Who can sell their work?
GOOD Market is open to all PSUGD students! You can sell anything – do you have illustration work from class? Lettering that you could turn into cards? Make prints of it! Make cards! Make all the things! You don’t have to do extra work to sell at GOOD Market. All you need to do is apply and pay the $5 fee.
** Please note, due to limited space each seller will be limited to 5 pieces each (multiples/prints of each piece are highly encouraged within reason). If you’re concerned about the size of your piece(s), please verify with us. For legal reasons we request that you do not make fanart of any existing piece of media or make anything that may get us sued. Let’s make original work!
What do I make?
Anything! Cards, wrapping paper, pins, gifts, socks, soap, leather goods, whatever you like to make. Keep in mind that you can’t always turn a school project into a marketable good without a bunch of editing, but we love to see projects and illustrations turned into art prints or cards. For legal reasons we request that you do not make fanart of any existing piece of media or make anything that may get us sued. Let’s make original work!

How do I apply and what is the deadline?
To apply fill out this Google form.
The deadline for the Fall 2017 GOOD Market application is Monday 11/27. We will not accept drop-offs of product without the $5 fee and will not be taking drop-offs past Thursday, 11/30 @5:00PM.
How do I price my work? How do I package it?
Things vary. For most things people usually stay under $25, cards are around $6, but handmade goods are up to interpretation! A good place to start is to look at sites like Etsy or to think about what similar hand made goods would cost out in the world.
In the past students have had success with cellophane bags. You can find them in art stores, craft stores (like Columbia Art Supply who is known to have sales! or Blick, Michaels, etc.), or on Amazon! Sharing with a friend is a great option, they’re often sold in bulk. You’re welcome to not use cellophane bags, but packaging is required. Keep in mind that we have to have somewhere secure to put the vendor tag, no tape or staples directly to your work please.
Can I volunteer to help with GOOD Market?
YES! Please and THANK YOU! If you are selling in GOOD Market we encourage you to volunteer. If you aren’t selling and just want to hang out we would love to have you too! We need a few volunteers to assist us with set up, manning the money and selling, and tearing down. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
